In the most recent episode of the Comic Book Club video podcast, Kevin Conroy stopped by and dropped a bit of a bomb on an upcoming DC Direct to DVD animated feature.

In Conroy’s statement, the voice of Batman said he just finished work on a movie that features the Flash – a.k.a Flashpoint.

The series details an altered DC Universe in which only Barry Allen, Kid Flash and Booster Gold seem to be aware of significant differences between the regular timeline and the altered one, including Cyborg’s place as the quintessential hero, Superman’s apparent detention by the government, and a Thomas Wayne version of Batman who spends “his days running Wayne Casinos.”

This is interesting news, and though I have really enjoyed the animated movies Warner Bros. has put out, I wonder if this movie is too soon on the heals of Crisis on Two Earths that also features an alternate universe and altered timelines?

    Flashpoint is why I stopped reading, caring about, and purchasing DC comics.

    Next up, direct-to-DVD DC movies…

    I knew at some point they’d make a movie I would have no interest in seeing. Bravo to DC it took this long.
